Because we all worship one God, one Allah!

Morocco – land of sands and souks, olive groves and majestic mosques.  From one World Heritage site to another – Rabat, Fes Medina, Meknes, Casablanca, Marrakesh, Ben Haddou – our feet filled the footprints of Berbers and Romans, Muslims and Christians.  Our prayers arose in the enormous prayer hall in Casablanca’s Hassan II Mosque (the third largest mosque in the world), along Roman Volubilis’s ancient mosaic-lined walkways, beneath the sun-streaked aisles of Notra Dame de Lourdes Roman Catholic cathedral in Casablanca.

Our Muslim Moroccan guides proudly pointed out the variety of worship centres welcome in their land: Jewish synagogues, Muslim mosques and Christian churches, exclaiming, “because we all worship on God, one Allah.”

We return to our ministry in Salisbury, United Kingdom, rested, renewed and inspired.
